Fructose

Fructose has different effect than glucose on brain regions that regulate appetite.

In a study examining possible factors regarding the associations between fructose consumption and weight gain, brain magnetic resonance imaging of study participants indicated that ingestion of glucose but not fructose reduced cerebral blood flow and activity in brain regions that regulate appetite, and ingestion of glucose but not fructose produced increased ratings of satiety and fullness. Therefore high level of fructose may further increase the need to eat more.
